Irving Woman Killed in Attack by Her Own Dogs

Johana Villafane

A Texas woman died on Saturday after she was "attacked by her two pit bull terriers", police said.

The woman died after she was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

Police said they were forced to fatally shoot the two dogs because their "continued aggression" was preventing them from getting Villafane medical attention.

Johana Villafane, 33, of Irving had visited the facility to feed the dogs when she was attacked in an outside exercise area.

The pit bulls were being quarantined at the O'Connor Animal Hospital in Irving over concerns they had rabies - having already bitten another person.

The dogs would not let staff or police near the woman. Police officer James McClellan says an investigation is underway to determine the reason the dogs attacked; they were shot and killed, McClellan says, because they would not allow paramedics to reach the victim. McClellan says Villafane had been visiting the dogs on what's believed to be a daily basis, feeding and walking them.

Detectives and the department's animal services division is investigating Villafane's death.
